Last night, my church had a city-wide prayer meeting for Ukraine. We gathered together, brothers and sisters from different churches and denominations, and earnestly prayed for those suffering in the area.
I heard this song on the radio, and it reminded me of the passion I once had for the work Jesus was (and is) doing in Northern Nigeria, especially with the Chibok girls.
I even made a video about the girls with this song as the soundtrack. While much has changed, Jesus’ power has not. I wanted to go through the lyrics that most encouraged me– and will most encourage you.
“Heaven thundered And the world was born Life begins and ends in the dust You formed – Jesus is in control, and is in control of Nigeria. Faith commanded And the mountains moved Fear is losing ground, to our hope in You – In all of the pain and anguish found in Nigeria, Jesus is winning. Fear is losing ground to Christ. Unstoppable God Let Your glory go on and on Impossible things In Your name, they shall be done” – The “Impossible” thing– freeing the Chibok girls– has been done, with around 200 girls being found and freed!
The rest of the song– the next stanza and chorus– continues to speak of Jesus freeing us and conquering sin and darkness. What an amazing God we serve!
It has been 8 years since the 276 Chibok girls were kidnapped, and there is still much to pray over and see happen from the Lord. But I remember when I would pray, asking that if He were to free even one girl, I would be overjoyed. And here we are, with hundreds of girls FREED!!!
Just as this song says, “When I called, you answered.” Jesus heard my cry over these girls back in 2014, and has worked mightily. He heard my cry– and still hears it today.
There is still much to pray over for these girls, and for Nigeria in general. There is a lot to be done… but let’s celebrate. In a spirit of celebration and thanksgiving, let’s jam to this song!!! We serve an unstoppable God!!!
With Love, to all of my Friends & Followers,
